nearly ten years in the making. >> director comey was instrumental in recognizing that these agents were line of duty deaths. that is why we are standing here at the national law enforcement officers memorial. >> reporter: the issue, fbi agents like steven carr, robert roth, and wesley yu died years after the attacks. cancer caused by fumes from the debris. bureaucracy kept those deaths from being classified as happening in the line of duty. >> about three years ago when director comey came in we had been trying to get some traction on this recognition of these agents, line of duty deaths. director comey came in, picked up on it. over 50 names went up on wall this year. six of those being the names of the fbi agents. without the leadership from director comey, that wouldn't have happened. >> reporter: o'connor said this is one example of the former fbi director's work behind the scenes a contrast in statements made this week after his controversial firing. >> in your experience, thomas, it didn't seem as thoug
james comey's leadership? >> the vast majority of people within the fbi that we have contact with are strongly supportive of director comey. that is clear as i can put it. >> reporter: for now carved on these walls heroes who have their place among the selfless. their valor not in vain. in washington, mike valerio, wusa9. interviews are underway for the top fbi drop. eight people are considered candidates. they arrived this weekend at the jared dudley to meet with attorney general jeff sessions and his deputy rod rosenstein. president trump said all of the candidates are well known and of the highest level. meantime, congressman adam schiff told cbs' "face the nation" he wants someone apolitical. >> these are outstanding people very well
